Ean shows off his new MIDI Fighter 3D and talks about what DJs can expect as pay. Does the 3D Fighter work with a Traktor S4 set up? What do you think of his pay scale thoughts? I think he’s close.
“A few months ago, Attack of the Show producers got in touch with Ean to see if he’d be interested in appearing in a new segment on their show, “Rad Jobs”. – djtechtools.com

Jean-Luc De Meyer singing the 1982 Front 242 song Kampfbereit in his side project Underviewer. He’s been singing this song for 30 years and it’s great every time.

One can argue that if your a musician you need music videos. The Canon 5D MKIII was just announced last night. One of the reasons it’s special is it’s one of the “new” breed of DSLRs that also shoot video. This means you can use the many lenses that work with Canon cameras. You can certainly shoot a video on an iPhone but if you want to go all out for it in a yes I just bought a Minimoog Voyager XL kinda of way this Camera should be on your short list. Of course your going to want some great glass, a light kit and a bunch of other bank busting goodies. The body alone is $3500. I’d like a nice Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 ZE Planar Lens with it ($700). Take a look at some footage from the MKIIIs predecessor above. Can you hear your own music playing to such prettyness? Yes it also takes still pictures.
“Don’t be fooled, however, as there are obviously major changes here worthy of the new moniker. Key specs include a larger 1,040,000-dot 3.2-inch rear LCD, Digic 5+ processor, 22.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, 61-Point High Density Reticular autofocus with 41 cross-types (all of which are borrowed from the 1D X), dual memory card slots (SD and CompactFlash) an extended ISO range of 50 to 102,400 (100 to 25,600, natively), OVF with 100 percent coverage (versus 98 previously), and a maximum 6 FPS burst speed. Naturally, the 5D Mark III is no slouch in the video department: it can capture h.264 footage at HD resolutions up to 1080 at 24/25/30p or 720 at 50/60p, with an effective ISO range of 100-128,000 — and of course there’s a stereo mic input for the microphone of your choice. Better yet, not only does it allow for real-time control of your audio levels during filming, but also monitoring, being the first EOS-series DSLR to come equipped with a headphone jack (!) — something that’s been sorely missing in the world of ILC cameras.” – Engadget

I love songwriting helper Apps. ProChords helps you find the next chord. I was using it last night and it definitely helped me make a progression I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. It’s a bit more than your standard App at $8.99 and keep in mind your still doing to have to work hard to create a song.
“ProChords is a hand held road map of chords from 9000 songs. So if you are working on a song Fx. “Am7, Em7, Am7, Em7″ and don’t know how to get out of the loop. Tab it into ProChords and you will instantly know 31 different ways to continue. It makes it fun to explore odd chord progressions and get inspiration for more original songwriting” – prochords.dk

The Beauty Voice Changer is a “device” that helps you tune your voice. It comes in either orange or purple. It’s $57 and yes I think it’s crazy. Is there any chance in hell this actually works?
“The Beauty Voice Trainer helps give you the dulcet voice you know you’ve always wanted, in just five minutes a day. The system works in three ways: without training, the human throat is restricted. The specially designed mouthpiece positions the tongue to open the voice passage, allowing a much stronger sound.” – Japantrendshop.com
